Gerry Boyle, author of Deadline and Bloodline  

Sunday, March 8, 7:00pm
Cold River Radio Show live with Gerry Boyle, author of Deadline and Bloodline at Theater in the Woods. Tickets are $25 on sale at White Birch Books.

The Cold River Radio Show is a quintessential old-time radio show featuring exclusively New England based artists, performers, authors and storytellers. We’re selling tickets at the store and we’ll be selling books at the show for Maine author GERRY BOYLE, who will be talking about the reissues of his series featuring Jack McMorrow, a veteran crime reporter from New York City who has relocated to a small town in Androscoggin, Maine.

Originally published in 1993, the entire McMorrow series has undergone a facelift and is being re-released a couple books at a time. Currently books 1 and 2 – Deadline and Bloodline – are out, with the third and fourth books, Lifeline and Potshot, following soon. In addition, Boyle has written a brand new McMorrow book, Once Burned, which is due out in May. All this offers a great opportunity to get reacquainted with Jack McMorrow or meet him for the first time.

It all begins in Deadline, when murder visits the seemingly sleepy town of Androscoggin, Maine, it lands in the lap of veteran New York Times crime reporter Jack McMorrow, a recent transplant from the city. As McMorrow struggles to find his way in a small, rural town, an undercurrent of violence draws him into deep and dangerous waters.

Like many crime novelists, Boyle began his writing career in newspapers—the best crimefiction training ground ever. After Colby College, he knocked around, including stints as a roofer, a postman and a manuscript reader at a big New York publisher. His first reporting job was with a weekly in the paper mill town of Rumford, Maine. After a few months it was on to the (Waterville, Maine) Morning Sentinel, where editors learned early on that he worked best when left to his own devices. He wrote about the daily drama he witnessed in police stations, courtrooms, and crime scenes in Maine.
